Dr Xianghui Hou
Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering @University of Nottingham
Dr Xianghui Hou is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Engineering at The University of Nottingham. Dr Hou has extensive experience in processing and fabrication of films, coatings, composites and nanostructured materials for various engineering applications, including hydrophobic and icephobic surfaces. He has published more than 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has been intensively working on several projects focusing on the R&D of icephobic coatings for ice protection, funded by DSTL, EU, and industrial sponsors.
Matthew Wadge
Doctoral Research in Biomedical Materials @University of Nottingham
Matthew graduated from the University of Nottingham with a first-class BSc (Hons) degree in Biomedical Materials Science in 2017. His undergraduate achievements contributed to him receiving the Armourers and Brasiers' TWI Best BSc/BEng Student of the Year Award in the subsequent year. Following on from his final year project work on generating biomedical titanate structures, he embarked upon a Ph.D., again within the Engineering Faculty at Nottingham, under the supervision of Prof. David Grant, Dr. Ifty Ahmed, and Dr. Reda Felfel. His Ph.D. topic revolves around the translation of biomedical/antibacterial titanates, using DC magnetron sputtering, onto alternative biomedical materials for implantation. Matthew's constant inspiration for his project work is to help alleviate implant failure and improve natural implant fixation, ultimately to improve people's quality of life. In addition to his project work, Matthew also actively helps/runs STEM outreach activities. He recently volunteer
